Texas 5

Hey Gang,

OK where was I?



We woke about 10 and met for breakfast in the hotels restaurant. After breakfast we split up. I went with Walt and the girls to go to Natural Bridge Caverns. That's one thing about traveling with Walt, there is never a spare minute, he fills up every second with something to do or see.



Natural Bridge Caverns was just awesome. The descent was over 200 feet down and some of the large rooms had 50 foot ceilings. The temperature was about 78 with… Continue

Texas 4

Well the day wasn't that bad after all, in fact it was great. I stayed behind at the hotel and slept in till about 11:30 while they went to Six Flags.



I did some emails and then headed to a restaurant close to the hotel called The Egg and I. A bit expensive but it was good food.



I went back to the hotel and asked for a shuttle to downtown San Antonio. The hotel doesn't give rides to downtown only to the park n ride. I never rode a bus before alone and was clueless to what… Continue

Texas 3

Hey Gang,

I felt so at home at the condo maybe too at home. This morning Jami knocked on our door to give us the keys which I left in the door knob over night. A habit I have.



We left the condo and went to the Lone Star aviation museum. Quite interesting. Down the road was the Moody Gardens, the name is a fooler as it has little to do with gardens. We went to the aquarium which was nice. After that we headed towards San Antonio.



We made a mistake because we left the… Continue

Texas 2

Last night after Walt returned from racket ball we went to one of the pier's on the Galveston break wall.



It's quite long and elevated about 20 feet. In the middle of the pier is a small convenience store that sells snacks, beer and bait. If you want to go to the fishing pier or observation deck its 2 bucks unless you purchase something.



We met a 25 year old lady who struck up a conversation with us. I mention her age only because her knowledge of issues was quite… Continue

Texas 1

Hey Gang,



I am in Texas with Walt's family on a 5 day escape. The trip is a graduation present for Walt's son Jimmy. Jimmy graduated from the 8th grade on the honor roll and received a scholarship. For a present Jimmy picked where he wanted to go.



I was a little apprehensive about leaving because of how busy I am but I couldn't disappoint .Jimmy really wanted me to come along plus all the planning Walt put into the trip' I couldn't say no.



The flight to Huston… Continue

Wanna have more fun than anyone?

We are Sisters on the Fly.  Perhaps you've heard of us?  We are a group of women from across

the country that have at least one thing in common...adventure!.  

 

We fly fish, we camp,  we ride horses,  and attend cowgirl college.  We share recipes and 

heartaches. We go antiquing and a little 'junk-tiquing'.  We search out old trailers and turn them into

fancy hotels on wheels.   We chat, we laugh, cry and support one another and best of all ...we

have…

Meet Chuck

Hey Gang,

You haven't received one of these emails in a long time.



Today I went to Dollar Tree to pick up a card for dad. I hurried to the door but noticed behind me an older gentleman with a cane walking slowly. I waited the extra 10 seconds and held the door for him. I am glad I slowed down. All it took was for me to hold the door open to make a new friend.



He blessed me and said have a great day. I said well you to. He responded let me give you a great tip, I… Continue

 I have cracked a tail light lense on my moter home and for the life of me can't find a replacement. I've spent hours on the web and have spoken to others with this lense having the same problem. Its a Dietz 160 light assembly and uses a 161 lense. If any body can help me it would be greatly apreciated.
